155 – The Sons Of War: Part 2 – Billy

155 – The Sons Of War: Part 2 – Billy

 

Now here stands a mother

Who waits to see her son.

And here too stands a father

Left with nothing but his gun.

Mama waits for Billy

She thinks he’s coming home,

Though Papa’s tried to tell her

She won’t hear what is known.

The plane that was to bring him

Safely free from harm,

Went down just off the coast

When they hit an unseen storm.

But Mama waits for Billy

She won’t believe it’s done.

And Papa’s still there standing

Without his only son.
